Calendrier de l'Avent jour 1 : Hommage à Jeanne-Mance. Home - GlosTrad. Welcome - Irish Traditional Music Archive / Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann. IdentitAirs Québécois. The music I wish to talk about here is often named «Trad» by the younger generation.

IdentitAirs Québécois

«Identitairs» is a pun; a mixture of «identity» and «airs» (which means «tunes» in french). A word to coin the fact that traditional music often helps to define a people's identity. The term «Québécois» is also relatively new — late sixties, with the awakening of Quebec's nationalism. Before this, the descendents of the French settlers of the St Lawrence valley(1) called themselves «French-canadians», and before that, simply «Canadians».

Learn to play traditional tunes for music sessions and dancing in the company of other beginners. Play slowly and practice whatever’s causing difficulty for you. Join fiddler, concertina, guitar and melodeon player Gavin Atkin at the Gun & Spitroast pub at Horsmonden, Kent (TN12 8HT) on the SECOND and FOURTH Wednesdays of each month at 8pm until the summer of 2016. Please feel free to join us at any point through the year – we do play our tunes very slowly to begin with, and play only a two or three over and over again on any given evening! Admission is free. In addition to the classes we run tunes sessions (see the Sessions page) and in the spring and autumn also put on a dance in which the class is joined by friends to form a band to play for dancing.
